Benjamin Boyd

 

Original Member of the Presbytery of Hartford, ordained 12 Nov 1806, died at age 83 years source

 

These congregations [Pymatuning, Beula and Trumbull] constituted the original charge of Rev. Benjamin Boyd, and all seem to have become extinct.  They were situated near the boundary line of Ohio and Pennsylvania.  Mr. Boyd was installed over them November 12, 1806, and was dismissed in 1809.  These churches seem to have declined soon after.  The names of Beula and Trumbull do not appear on the roll after the year 1810; and Pymatuning is not mentioned after 1813.  The membership was probably drawn to churches springing up in more favorable locations in the neighborhood.
